Fractional vs. Masthead Rig

On many of the discussions commenting on the desireable qualities of a new boat, the writers recommend a fractional rig for the stated advantages.

However, boat builders, for example Tartan/C&C, are producing masthead rigs. What are the advantages of a masthead rig vs. a fractional rig? What are the disadvantages?
